We are proud of the fact that our series of Microsoft Office 4.3, Microsoft Office 95, Microsoft Office 97, Microsoft Office 2000, and Microsoft Office XP textbooks have been the most widely used books in computer education. With each new edition of our Office books, we have made significant improvements based on software changes and comments made by both instructors and students. Our Microsoft Office 2003 books continue with the innovation, quality, and reliability that you have come to expect from the Shelly Cashman Series.
"The Shelly Cashman Series is to computer applications as Kleenex is to tissue." - Instructor Diane Folse
"Students appreciate the detail of instruction the Shelly Cashman Series texts offer and the numerous resources made available to them. The instructions are exact and they are able to compare their screen with those pictured in the book. Once students have taken a course using a Shelly Cashman text, they do not want a book by anyone else." - Linda Haberaecker, Davenport University
